Based on the classic novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edna Ferber, GIANT is a new American musical that spans generations in an epic chronicle of the state that's like no place else on earth: Texas. Amid a turbulent culture of greed, bigotry and money, a powerful cattleman, his new East Coast bride, their family and friends â€“ not to mention their enemies â€“ embrace and confront the joys and sorrows that loom as large as the state they call home.
With a book by Sybille Pearson (the Tony-nominated author of Baby), music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa (the five-time Tony-nominated composer of The Wild Party and Hello Again) and direction by Michael Greif (the three-time Tony-nominated director of Rent and The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide...), GIANT comes to life in an appropriately huge production with a company of 22 actors and a 17-piece orchestra.
GIANT is a co-production with Dallas Theater Center and a project of The Public's Musical Theater Initiative. GIANT is made possible with the generous support of THE TED AND MARY JO SHEN CHARITABLE FUND
